The picture was published in American Racer 1940-1980 by Stephen Wright, picture by Dan Mahoney. The 1970 Triumph team, Nixon, Castro and Romero, at the old Sacramento Mile. Castro and Romero tried the converted road racers in practice but found them unsuitable. Romero rode his twin with the Routt 750 kit. The facing page has this picture of Rice and Aldana, also at Sacramento (guess who in the lower corner):
